Thank you all for your suggestion of sewing bells on the hem of my clothes yesterday. You are too helpful.
It was actually kind of dramatic. Right before I started, the electricity went out. It remained out for over 4 hours. So....I cleaned in the heat and darkness. I really couldn't see in the closet, but I managed to drag all the books out of there and arrange them neatly on the girls' bookshelves. Then I cleaned up under Little Bit's loft because it's by the window and I could see.
But I couldn't stop there. I had to clean up under Sweetheart's loft and now they are both lovely. But I got hot and tired and stopped. So there are 2 or 4 major piles to go through and now that we have lights I could finish the closet.
They actually did not own as much stuff as I would have thought. They each have one shelf in the closet for their special toys that are too precious to throw in the general population of the play room. You know, their favorites.
And I'm happy to report that the window no longer sports a sheet for a curtain. (I had to take it off so I could see) It now has......nothing. I need your help. I know we've talked about this before but I'm still undecided.
Help please. Thank you.
